Samsung model RF265ABPN waxy looking piece fell into ice tray


The waxy piece has a clear plastic bracket, if its not connected, look around your freezer. The waxy piece fits inside the bracket, and attaches to the ice maker, just in front of the ice tray.

The white wire fits inside the waxy piece. It is the thermostat that tells the ice tray when to dump the ice.

This is impossible to feel around for, so you will need to remove at least the bottom freezer compartment as well as the ledge piece from just inside the freezer door. If you are a relatively thin/small person, you can extend the top tray fully outward, and slide underneath. Looking up at the ice maker, the plastic bracket should have a little prong. This prong will attach just behind the ice maker, with the thermostat facing the ice tray.

Neverending ice cystals buildup in freezer


Hi Rachel,

Opened 3-10 times per day, per week, per month?

There is only one possible source of these ice crystals -- moisture precipitating from the air (condensate) -- this air is coming from outside the freezer. It's either getting in when the freezer is opened or coming in around the gasket.

You might try a very thin coat of vaseline on the gasket to get a better seal.

Leaking Whirlpool refrigerator


My Whirlpool fridge had water droplets falling onto all three shelves and pooling unter the crisper drawers. I solved the problem by clearing the ice-clogged drain in the freezer.

In Whirlpool model ET21UM, the condensation drain hole is located directly behind the freezer. To access the drain hole, remove all your frozen items and place them in a large picnic cooler. Notice that the floor of the freezer is basically a large plastic tray fastened by two small bolts. Unscrew the bolts with a wrench or ratchet and remove the plastic tray. At this point you will probably see that water has seeped under the tray and created a mini ice rink on the bottom of your freezer. You can tap the ice lightly with the handle of a screwdriver to break it up. Once it's broken, toss the ice into your sink, or put it in a plastic bag and store into your cooler to keep everything cold.

Once the ice has been removed from the freezer floor, you should be able to see a metal drip trough in the back under a false wall hiding the condenser coils. It's a little tougher to remove the ice from the drip trough with the screwdriver method, so you might want to use a hair dryer. After a few minutes with the hair dryer, you should be able to remove most of the ice by hand. You can remove any water with a sponge or turkey baster. The only ice left will be a plug of ice in the drain hole in the middle of the drip trough. Heat up a cup of water in the microwave and carefully pour it into the drip trough. If the drip trough is hard to access, you might need to use a funnel. The hot water should melt most of the ice in the drain hole. If it pools in the drip trough and doesn't drain, use a sponge or turkey baster to remove the water and add hot water again. A small length of wire or a pipe cleaner might help clear any other obstruction in the drain hole. When the drain is clear you should hear water flowing through it. Dry off the floor of the freezer and return the plastic floor tray to it's spot and fasten with the two bolts. Remove any water that has pooled in your refigerator and you're done.
